What’s more, the background color of Start Menu changes along with desktop background.

Is ist the fault of iObit and other 3rd party vendors that Microsoft seems to be schizophrenic?

Why isn´t there such an option already built in in Windows 8/8.1/10 like it has been the last decades?

As a long time Windows user until now I have not installed any 3rd party software on my Windows 8.1 system, talking to myselft that I will learn it some day, but as a user that has grown up with Windows 3.1, when it comes to starting programs from the depth of the system, I´m confused everytime again and again. Stupid Microsoft developers !!!!! They have removed one of the core functions in this operating system. Not even the taskbar is working correctly, and no one at MS cares. At least the system runs more or lesss stable, though I have to restart it when I need stability and ressources for sensible projects. Welcome to the new digitized age where nothing works! May god bless us....

Upon install it looks impressive - any problems with it I can uninstall. With new software I always create a restore point before installing to ensure I can recover

Funny how the comments made so far, have rated this so poorly, not to mention I have never been a fan of the elements concept... our mobile phones act in a similar elements fashion.

One wonders what the next generation of Windows will bring to the table.

I use StartMenuX, which you featured in the oast. It is very similar to the Windows 7 Menu but has some very helpful additions, such as allowing the organization of programs into specific folders. Ones that we create, or rename existing ones, and can use icons for each folder. I was so impressed with it, that I bought the upgrades that come out every few years

Rick_S, Been using classic start menu for years; it's called classic shell now. I can move things from one folder to another, add new categories all the things you describe and as far as I know it's still free. You can change it to different versions to suit which ever win os you like best. About a year or two ago they sent me an update invite. I love it. Would take something quite spectacular to get me to change. Best of all it's free to use.

I installed this thing. It is still as ugly-looking and lacking function as I remember it to be.

I'm currently using Start MENU X. It gives it to me all on one screen, all at once. I'm not switching over for this dog's breakfast.

Seems obvious that it will revert to the default Windows. However, considering the software only costs $8, that is a pretty reasonable try before you buy.

I have used this since the time Windows 10 first came out a few years back. I like it.

What happens after the six month trial is over?

Reply   |   Comment by dadams  –  7 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+17)

dadams, It turns into the free version and nag's you to upgrade back to the paid Pro Version

Reply   |   Comment by Jim C  –  7 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+23)

dadams, i guess it goes to the free version

Jim C, so a classic-ish style start menu that nags... I'd prefer to get used to the new user interface and customise it to suit me and do without the nags and suggested app tiles. And they don't sell a 6 month license either and what are the odds it will try and push more of their PUP software on end users in the free edition... very likely on past exeprience with this company.
